Xilinx ships the first parts in its Zynq-7000 extensible processing platform
December 08, 2011 // Nick Flaherty
Xilinx has demonstrated its Zynq-7000 Extensible Processing Platform (EPP) for the first time as it starts shipping devices to customers. The platform combines 28nm FPGA fabric with a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore processing system, with the 30K logic cell Zynq-7000 EPP shown running a Linux-based application.
Weve been heavily focused on the development of our Zynq-7000 EPP products and IP over the past several months, says Michael Fawcett, CTO of iVeia, So, naturally, we were very excited to receive our first Zynq-7020 devices. Our Atlas-I-Z7e will be the first computer-on-module to host a Zynq device and will drop into existing sockets for Android handheld, digital radio, and video processing applications. We fully expect to be able to demonstrate such applications within a few months, a credit to Xilinxs early access support, tools, and emulation platform.
Production qualified parts of the Zynq-7020 are on track to begin shipping in the second half of 2012, says Xilinx.
Its exciting to see early access customers take what theyve accomplished since we first launched the Extensible Processing Platform program in April 2010 and apply their systems to these first devices, said Lawrence Getman, Vice President of Processing at Xilinx. We are able to give them a significant time to market advantage in their development and introduction of new products that require the unrivalled levels of system performance, flexibility and integration offered by this new class of system-on-chip.All news
